What our past clients and trade partners have to say about their experience with City Homes.
My family built our home with City Homes in 2019/2020. We were pleasantly surprised by the way they listened to our ideas and made them into a reality by suggesting and negotiating reasonable and complimentary ideas in our budget. They never sacrificed quality and made sure to communicate along the way. No detail was left untouched AND we had a lot of fun working with them. We love our home and would build again with them.
City Homes exceeded my expectations. There are always issues that arise when purchasing a newly constructed home. Todd was outstanding. He identified items during our walk through that I didn't notice (small cracks, nail head in sheetrock) and fixed them. He also waited until after I was moved in so the painters could "touch up" any marks left from the movers. Lisa in the office always responded quickly and followed up to make sure items were completed on time.
The experience of building our forever home with City Homes exceeded our expectations in every way. From the very beginning, we knew we were on the same page when we showed an inspirational photo of a home style we loved to Rebecca, and she presented the same exact photo to us from her archive. We were ecstatic to acquire the perfect lot at the right price, find the right architect for our style, and hash out the details during a global pandemic. We completed our home in record time and were blown away by the talented team provided to us. I would recommend City Homes to anyone who wants to build the house of their dreams with little stress and a firm trust in their abilities.
Working with City Homes is always a pleasure. They are great communicators which is key for us and they are always striving for excellence. I have enjoyed working with all of them from the people in the office, to the people out in the field. This is a team who truly cares about the clients they serve and it shows!
When we first made the decision to build, we really did our due diligence with finding the perfect builder. From the moment we met with City Homes we knew they would be passionate about building our dream home and that really held true throughout the entire process. I came to them with an idea for just about every inch of the house and wanted a builder who would execute each one of those ideas. City Homes did not disappoint. Every idea has come to life exactly how I imagined. Our house is the perfect blend of form and function and everyone who comes in says it is so, “us.” We love our home beyond words and would work with City Homes again and again.
It became clear to us after downsizing from a large home to an apartment that we really did want to be back in a house, one that could meet our needs as we grow older while accommodating our family and friends for entertaining. City Homes totally “got it”. They helped us plan and build the perfect home, listening to our wants while offering expertise and guidance, all while keeping us on budget. The results are spectacular, and we love it!
The cool thing about City Homes is that they listen and then deliver—beautiful results. We have a home that is filled with light, warm archways and all of the amenities that we could ever have imagined! When friends and family come over to see us, they are blown away by the impeccable attention to detail of the construction in our home.
We hired Malooly Inc, to renovate the exterior of our home. With the help of their designer, Chris Malooly, and his team of professional workers, they recreated our outdated 1950's exterior into a classic gem. We enjoyed working with Chris and team - they were timely, respectful of our privacy, schedule and young children, clean, tidy, and detail oriented. We recommend City Homes and Malooly Inc, to our friends and family for quality worksmanship, great vision, and a robust work ethic.
As I write this testimonial, I am sitting in the house of my dreams!
Let me tell you how it happened. I sell residential Real Estate; several years ago my daughter and her husband moved back to Minneapolis from out of state. I knew of an okay home located on a phenomenal lot. After begging my kids to look at and consider buying the house while thinking "big picture, location, location, location", my daughter turned to me and said "mom, this just isn't for us but if you love it so much, why don't you buy it?" Fast forward twenty four hours and it was ours! It became a rental property for us when after a couple of years we sold our family home in Edina out of the clear blue sky and decided to tear down the "okay" home and build on the "phenomenal" lot! After working in the industry for over a decade and seeing their work over and over I knew that if we were ever going to build a home, it would be with CITY HOMES. Fast forward three years and here we are, in our beautiful new home in a location we both love.
I couldn't have imagined a better outcome than the one we have and on the way we were treated with kindness, respect, understanding and patience. Our decision to work with CITY HOMES was a perfect one, from start to finish; they helped us choose an architect, vetted our design, challenged us when they needed to, backed down when they should have and built our home from start to finish as if they were building it for their own family. I have never felt so truly cared about and every step of the way I trusted everyone whose paths we crossed. Whether it was the sheet rocker, painter, tile installer and everyone in between, our experience was one I would label under the "close to perfect" category. I implore you to meet with CITY HOMES if you are considering a new home build, I kid you not, every single time I pull into my driveway and walk in the door to our home I think about the tender and knowledgeable care that was given to us by every member of the CITY HOMES team, Our entire experience was a sensation!
We built our dream home with City Homes and could not be happier! Their experienced and talented team put great attention to detail in every step of the process. Rebecca presented us a very straight-forward cost statement and everything was very logical and transparent throughout. Chris and Ben and the rest of the team demanded quality at every turn, and that leads to an amazing finished product! The degree of creativity and experience in this group is tremendous, and I would recommend anyone that wants to build the house they’ve always wanted to go with City Homes!
We built with City Homes in 2013 and loved our home! In 2018, we decided to make a move to a new neighborhood. We chose to build with City Homes for a second time because we trusted them to deliver a home we would be certain to love. And as we hoped, the finished product is beautiful and perfect for our family!
After extensive research and meeting with multiple builders in Edina, we decided to work with the City Homes team to tear down and build our family home. Throughout the process we were continually impressed by their attention to detail, professional guidance and excellent communication. We would highly recommend City Homes for your custom home and would work with them again in a heartbeat!
We are so happy and delighted with our new house built by City Homes. The entire experience was engaging, positive, and transparent (even during the challenging decisions.) We were so impressed with the team and how they navigated us through the process and helped us look at things that were either intuitive, based on their experience, and where we could pass on things that were unnecessary. Although there are always moments of stress in these type of projects, City homes was always quick to respond and thoughtful in their delivery. We love our home and are proud to be in the City Homes family.
